The Mullard name and trademark have been acquired by the New Sensor Corporation. This new production Mullard EL34 tube is manufactured at their Xpo-Pul factory (also known as Reflektor) in Saratov, Russia. New Sensor is an American corporation and since taking ownership of this factory has been steadily improving the quality of current production tubes.

Compared to the New Sensor Corp. Svetlana which has a rather strident midrange, the new Mullard EL34 has been considerably smoothed. The overall sound is more balanced and very warm. This is great news for people with something like a Marshall since they are inherently midrangey. The low mids are nicely balanced to prevent any boomy tone.

If you are curious about how these fare in a hifi stereo amplifier be sure to read the Wall of Sound EL34 tube comparison for details.

This new production EL34 tube is New Sensor's reissue of the famous Mullard EL34.

Purchased this tube from the tube store approximately a year ago. The tubes arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I placed them in a Marshall JCM 800 50w amp, and biased around 35-36mA per tube. It biased up quickly and remained steady with virtually no drift in it's initial 8hrs of life. Tone is balanced with moderate power and headroom. Overall for me the tone was bland, nothing exciting to write about, just kind of boring in which from a 50w 2204 is rare. I then tried an SED Winged C tube and the difference was beyond stunning. Absolutely no comparison..the SED flat out destroyed it with a far richer, far more dynamic sound with unspeakable beautiful complexities in the mid frequencies. If you're looking for that famous Marshall crunch this is not the tube.
